Hasan Ali explains why he boycotted SLMC convention

The senior-most leader of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC), Hasan Ali, has rebelled against the party complaining of a consistent bid by the party establishment to engineer his exit by stripping him of powers due to him as party General Secretary. Ali (70) was conspicuous by his absence at the SLMC’s 19th Grand Convention at Palamunai in Ampara district on Saturday in which the chief guest was Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena. Ali’s boycott caught the media’s attention almost as much as President Sirisena’s speech in which he ridiculed rival Mahinda Rajapaksa’s demand that power be handed back to him. Ali told Express that as the “sole surviving founder-member of the SLMC”, he could not be treated so shabbily. He recalled that it was with great difficulty that Ashraf and he formed the party and fought the first ever election to the newly formed North Eastern Provincial Council in the late 1980s in the face of threats to their lives from the LTTE. The present leaders of the SLMC were not there at that time. Regretting that the party leadership had not given him a chance to enter parliament through an election, Ali said that the last time he contested for the Eastern Provincial Council, he had got the single largest number of preferential votes in Ampara district. “Despite my capabilities they would always make me a National List MP (which is by nomination and not election) because they can get rid of me at any time,” Ali alleged. He further said that he had been stripped of his powers to make party Leader Rauff Hakeem supreme. “My colleagues and I raised objections to this. Talks were held and I was promised that my powers will be restored before the party convention. But the promise was not kept. That is why I stayed away from the convention,” Ali said. - See more at: http://www.adaderana.lk/news/34621/hasan-ali-explains-why-he-boycotted-slmc-convention#sthash.d1Jq7AWP.dpuf
